Japanese are all waiting patiently for cherry blossom in spring. it comes along with the air of early spring…we feel it as new start, light of hope or something delightful and energetic… When I went to a small park bihind my house to see it, There were noone but me there and all the branches of cherry trees there were covered with fully bloomed small light pink flowers. It was as overwhelmingly fantastic as if there were some fairies are living in the trees. It felt as I was not in the real world. the atomosphere was like I was taken to somewhere else… and got scared a little… it was that much wonderful and powerful. I drew something of cherry blossom motif this year, too. the above image is what I did and looks like a pattern for Kimono. I hand drew some cherry blossom flowers below with copic pen, cut out on a Sumi ink paint and mix them all togther. it is like stencil.
this is my cherry blossom I did a few yrs ago. 数年前に描いた桜
